Today Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes affects 10.5% of the U.S. population. An additional 7% have diabetes or pre-diabetes but have not been diagnosed (Diabetes Research Institute).
The pancreas is an abdomen organ that stretches from behind the stomach to near the spleen. In the average adult, the pancreas is about 12–15 centimetres (4.7–5.9 in.) long and salmon-colored in appearance. Anatomically, the pancreas is divided into a head, neck, body, and tail. The Islets of Langerhans is a part of the pancreas and the endocrine system and has four types of cells that produce insulin (beta), glucagon (alpha), somatostatin (delta), and pancreatic polypeptide (PP).
In the 1950’s Standard Process founder Dr. Royal Lee predicted the epidemic proportion of this disease would be reached in the next 50 years. Obviously, he was correct. His perspective as to why this would come to pass related to one specific chemical added to the U.S. food chain. Bleach in our water (chlorinated), in our food (white flour) as well as cleaning supplies, disinfectants, swimming pools, etc., have become the American way of life. Bleach in any form, whether food grade or from other sources, triggers a specific chemical reaction in the human body. It converts Vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin, into a poison (Alloxan) that targets and kills or alters the beta cells of the Islets of Langerhans. Even though there are an estimated one million of these cells in the pancreas, any damage to these cells is significant over time; the regeneration of these cells is limited.
Dr. Lee also commented that the primary antagonist or cause of Type 1 Diabetes is parasite infestation particularly in adolescents, due to stress on pancreatic enzyme production. In every case of Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes this possibility should always be ruled out via a stool purge.
As wholistic (and Attunement) practitioners we often work in cooperation with any diabetic pharmaceuticals that the client may be using, such as synthetic insulin or Metformin. Even though they are not the final solution they do assist in maintaining blood sugar control using chemicals. I recommend changes in diet, lifestyle and supplementation to support the body when this condition occurs. A Paleo Diet (the hunter-gatherer way of eating) is very effective. Daily weight-bearing exercise, especially walking 30-60 minutes/day, is crucial in balancing high or low glucose (sugar) levels.
Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are autoimmune syndromes. For this I recommend Standard Process Pancreatrophin PMG. This protomorphogen (nuclear protein) helps to remove the burden from the immune assault on this endocrine gland (Islets) and exocrine (pancreas) organ.
The pancreas organ works in cooperation with the B vitamin complexes to regulate carbohydrate metabolism. Therefore, Standard Process Cataplex B-Core is an important addition to this nutritional protocol. You cannot normalize high blood sugar without the full spectrum B complex. Store-bought and on-line B vitamin products are synthetic. B vitamins always occur together in nature from various food sources such as liver, nutritional or brewer’s yeast, rice polishings and defatted wheat germ, to mention a few.
Two herbal formulations from MediHerb also help Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. Gymnema – this herb has been used for thousands of years and has been known to reduce sugar cravings as well as to support and restore pancreatic (islets) beta cell function. Diabetes is so rampant in India that the government has made this herb available free-of-charge to its citizens. The other herbal is Milk Thistle. This multi-beneficial herb helps with glucose release and normalizes blood sugar levels keeping it steady and constant. It also assists the liver in storing and manufacturing glucose depending on the body’s needs.
While the wholistic approach is similar in both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes, there is one nutrient addition beneficent for Type 2 Diabetes, called the Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF). In Type 2 Diabetes the primary challenge is insulin sensitivity. Insulin (a hormone released by the beta cell of the Islets of Langerhans), helps cells to absorb glucose and reduce high blood sugar by providing the cells with glucose for energy. If blood sugar levels are too low the pancreas releases glucagon (another hormone released from the alpha cells) which instructs the liver to release stored glucose causing blood sugar to rise. Type 2 Diabetes occurs when the cells resist the entry of glucose which then builds up in the blood. Excessive sugar in the blood may get out of control and, if not normalized, will destroy specific body tissues, particularly the kidneys, eyes and nervous and vascular system. Standard Process Cataplex GTF, taken daily helps with this crucial factor in the cellular entry of glucose.
A note to oneself for all of us who work with health care and Attunement. Discipline and focus are necessary in assisting the diabetic situation to heal. Everything that is ingested either blesses or curses. The immediate and long-term effects are revealed by the choices made in daily living.

The Pancreas and Islets of Langerhans are the physical and vibrational means in our bodies by which the radiation of the Third Seal (spiritual expression) – the Spirit of Blessing, is (or not) expressed into the world.
(quote from Chris’ book “Attunement…the Creator’s Magic”)
“The Third Seal is more specific in terms of living and requires a deliberate use of the feeling nature. The Third Seal radiation has to do with character expressed in daily living. Here emphasis is on values – moral character, quality of behavior, and an atmosphere of sacredness – and is clothed by a deep sense of blessing and thanksgiving. This is the level of radiation through which an individual who is revealing this character in living can begin to touch and experience the higher currents of radiation – currents the mind by itself cannot comprehend.
A sacred atmosphere is important as it provides a place of peace and tranquility where the things of Spirit can emerge. Spiritual essences cannot come into the world without a sacred setting…
The radiation that moves through the Third Seal is what is behind the life-pattern that forms the plant kingdom…There are various currents in this overall pattern, and the currents here are much tighter – closer together than the currents in the mental and physical patterns, where there is a larger sense of individuality. Another way of looking at this is that the band of energy (pneumaplasm) in which plant life is formed is narrower than the energy band of life-pattern forms of the mental realm, and considerably narrower than the physical realm…However, this does not mean there is any less diversity or awareness; there is plenty of both in the plant kingdom…
When this Third Seal opens and the subtle radiation of blessing is factually an experience in and through your consciousness, the window of memory opens and you can begin to remember who you are in a divine sense…The purpose of the human form of body, mind, spiritual expression, and feelings is to experience union with the Being that created it, thereby giving the Being an instrument of expression in this dimension – here is the right pattern of worship on the part of the human instrument…
The Third Seal is also connected with the intuitive nonconscious…”
A comment about using the numerous tools like runes, tarot cards and other approaches like astrology, numerology, the I Ching, etc.: These approaches used to read the nonconscious have worked effectively in a world vibration in the past; that world is now passing away. My perception is that today’s world is rapidly shifting it’s frequency and energy to a higher, more refined vibration. The individual and collective translation and conceptualization – how we see our world, the solar system, even the universe – is dramatically changing. How to read the nonconscious today requires a new tool. Could this be Attunement?
Another point to consider: the opposite energy of the Spirit of Blessing is cursing. When the cursing vibration is expressed it causes a debilitating effect on the pancreas and the islets of Langerhans. In today’s volatile and charged feeling-filled world, it is rather easy to identify the curse – accusation. As long as accusation remains, spiritual expression and the refined pneumaplasm subsequently generated in living are impossible.
Pancreas Attunement exercise:
1) Find a partner (or work with yourself) and share Attunement.
2) Balance the life-pattern at the cervicals and open the place of union (Vesica Piscis)
3) Share Attunement with the pineal gland
4) Put your RH (receiving hand) over the pineal and the GH (giving hand) over the pancreas to share Attunement radiation with the pancreas and the Islets of Langerhans (mostly in the body and tail)
5) Share radiation with the liver – RH into the left ear, GH over the liver
6) Put your RH over the liver and the GH over the pancreas – balance the Attunement radiation
7) Re-balance the cervical life-pattern
